On June 20-21 of 2019 «INTERNATIONAL DAYS «WHITE NIGHTS MED TALKS», the first networking conference on universities’ international activities and perspectives of the Russian wellness tourism, will take  place in St-Petersburg.  North-Western State Medical University (NWSMU) named after I.I. Mechnikov hosts the event.

In the middle of June, 2019, the unique conference will gather together opinion leaders in the field of universities’ international activities, specialists in fundraising in education, managers and representatives of the business-consulting agencies, assistance companies and influencers in sphere of wellness tourism.  Geographical coverage of the audience goes far beyond Russia, making the event international, and wide range of topics puts the conference in format of 2-days intensive in two directions – a) international affairs and universities’ networking and b) surging worldwide market of the wellness tourism.  NWSMU will be a linchpin here. Now the University pays a lot of attention to its international communications, prepares to enter the sphere  of medical tourism, and, by the way, has enough friends who are quite successful in these fields. These ones will be conference speakers, presenting the most update information, working life hacks and cases.

In spite of a certain separation of two topics – universities’ international activities will take on 20th of June and 21st will be dedicated to the medical tourism – according to the organizers’ plans: the audience of the first day could be easily integrated in the one of the second day. “ The universities of our country are traditionally considered not only the place for studies but also realm of practical skills, innovative projects and, the most important, - non-political and dynamic platform of the cross-cultural communications. In June we’ll gather together to learn from each other, talk about trends of the field and create new profound contacts. International staff is always idea people, great communicators, entrepreneurs and action guys. According the forecasts of the experts, medical tourism, especially the one in wellness sphere, will become one of the main segments of the world economy in the nearest future. We believe, that this topic will be interesting for all our participants: for the first ones panes session will be a reason to think about new development direction for their organization; for the second one – work book form the leaders; for the third ones, one more way to make and realize successful partner projects, to create new products, to make a contribution in our country’s prosperity and expansion of its international contacts”, said Tatiana Zhelninova, the head of international activities and projects management North-Western State Medical University named after I.I.
